Get Up And Fight

Get up and fight

“Beat your plowshares into swords
And your pruning hooks into spears;
Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’”

Joel 3:10 NKJV.

Do you ever feel too weak to overcome a situation.

There are times as parents that you have to go to war for our kids. It doesn’t mean that you don’t love them. It doesn’t mean that you are not tender and nurturing in their lives. It doesn’t mean that you aren’t compassionate. It does means that there are times to like Joel 3:10 says, beat your plowshares into swords and your pruning hooks into spears and to say to ourselves, I am strong for war. So you set aside your dishes and your laundry and your work assignments and you diligently focus on imparting truth to your child.

Make no mistake the enemy Satan hates you and He hates your kids.  He has an agenda for the life of your kids to try to kill, steal, and destroy them (John 10:10).  But you are a warrior.  You have been anointed and appointed by God to go to war on your knees.  You are strong in God. Yes, your children ultimately have the power to choose whether they will follow God. But you have the power to choose to fight for them in prayer and to instruct them in godliness.

Don’t lay down on the job of being a parent. Get up and fight for your kids.
